Can accutane cause hearing loss if taken a year before pregnancy

I took accutane for 9 months. A year after stopping the medication I fell pregnant. My son was born with sensorineural hearing loss. After ruling out every possible cause I was told they didn't have an answer as to why he was born profoundly deaf, I just didn't think at the time to ask about the medication as I tho it would have been safe (this was 4 years ago now). I know they say you can safely get pregnant a month after stopping but the fact that this can happen to your child if you get pregnant while taking it really makes me wonder if there is a connection here. I have read in forums that people have heard of birth defects years after stopping the medication but am yet to find any actual parents saying this. I would really appreciate any input on this from medical professionals or anyone that may be in a similar situation or point me in the right direction to find out more. I really don't know were to start with this, I can only assume doctors would deny this was possible to cover themselves for handing out the drug. Thanks
